Sadly i had no other choice but to close this channel for now.
More than once a day we receive tickets from players losing items after playing on channel 5.
I suspect that the reason is because while Ch5 is in or near USA, the database is in Europe.
And it might not be possible to get a reliable connection.
Any lost packet can have big consequences for the player.
So until i found a solution for this problem it will be better to keep the channel closed.

I have been thinking that i can run the character database on this server. 
But this will mean that it will run as a separate server group not connected to the main game.
I think this might be boring because it will be empty

buy a glasfiber cable and make a new undersea connection only for gamers from server in europe to usa network for better ping

 

:unsure: :lol:

 

usa - europe = +/- 8000 kilometer

 

lightspeed = +/- 250.000 kilometer per second

= 250 kilometer per ms

 

8000km / 250km/s = 32ms

 

gameserver in usa and database in europe cant work very well i think

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

you only could set a ping limit for 5. channel (for all player have the same bad connection time for example 150+ ping xD)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

if you make a server+database "only" for usa (better ping: usa farming+usa pvp)

and want to put together europe+usa

 

then u need new safe system for linking the 2 different databases without the risk anybody could cheat
